Description: Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described...
Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described as the perfect home for a caveman. Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering Karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals. Wildflowers are abundant around the precinct from September to November. Located 22km south of Margaret River.

I have never been in this type of cave. What an amazing place. Natural beauty at its best. The admission is reasonable and you have an audio as is self guided which was our preference and the audio was very knowledgeable

a spectacular cave located just south of margaret river where you are given a headset and sent off to view a beautiful cave at you're own pace. its a mid sized cave full of information and beautiful features defiantly worth a visit if you are in the area .

Far to expensive, why are we being ripped off, we already pay for these facilities with taxpayer money. It's time public servants got real with the charges to these facilities that at the end of...

Dear Megh D, Thanks for taking the time to post feedback on your visit to Mammoth Cave, and I'm sorry that you were disappointed. We try to keep our prices as low as possible so that the caves are accessible to everyone for a reasonable fee. Unlike a lot of other caves around Australia, we don't operate with government subsidies.... More

This is a self-guided tour which we found really easy to follow The cave is the easiest of the three caves to move around in We really enjoyed all three caves as they were all interestingly different

Not much i can say about this as you just have to see it for yourself. There are a number of these cave walks you can do in the area but we chose Mammoth as we were advised it was self guided with head sets which we liked as we could take our time & take in the experience. A... More

This cave is very well maintained and easy for both children and pregnant ladies to visit. The path is very well sign-posted and there is a wealth of information shared on the formation of the cave. If you have to choose only one of the three caves to visit, this is the easiest one to move around in.

Loved touring the Mammoth Cave with our Narrowcasters recorded guide. Lovely to take you own time to enjoy the formations. Best part was being in the cave alone for most of the tour - weekday, not school holidays! Highly recommend.

This is one of the three caves I visited. Beautiful. They give an audio tape for you to listen. No guide needed for this tour. But of course lot of energy to walk around. Gets very cold inside.
